Deciding which palette to pick these days can be a bit hard seeing as every brand under sun has at least one amazing palette associated with its makeup ranges. For me I tend to stick to eyeshadow palettes from brands simply because I find lip palettes become too messy with regular use, and face powders are better quality when they come individually. It seems that the make-up brand Jane Iredale has decided to make life a little bit easier for us with the release of their new makeup kit called Pure & Simple.
There’s no need to pick and choose with this palette as it comes with everything (bar mascara) that you would need in order to create an amazing natural looking makeup look. I have the kit in the shade Medium Light but it is available in 3 other shades
All of the makeup comes presented in this flip-open cardboard box. I will say I’m not a fan of the packaging just because it’s cardboard, would have personally preferred a plastic container palette instead. The palette comes with two different shades of the Jane Iredale PurePressed Mineral Foundation which I have review before so check it out here: Jane Iredale PurePressed Mineral Foundation .
The kit also comes with a blush shade that is great for adding warmth to the skin. The blush is pigmented enough that you get a nice even colour and not pigmented enough that it’s very buildable.
To apply the blush and the foundation powder the kit also has a mini kabuki brush that is split in half so that you can make into the shape of a flat foundation brush. The bristles of this brush aren’t that soft but it’s not bad when you need something for on-the-go.
Last of the powders in the kit are two eyeshadows, one a nice light neutral shade for applying all over the eyelid and the other a nice crease shade with a slight shimmer for definition. To apply the eyeshadows the kit has a dual ended sponge tip applicator but as you guys know these tools tend to go straight into the bin with me as I prefer to apply all my eyeshadows with brushes.
Last product in the kit is actually my favourite as it’s a multi use product. This is the Jane Iredale JustKissed Lip & Cheek Stain. Applied on the cheeks this gives a very dewy soft pink stain that really brightens the complexion. It’s not as easy to blend as a powdered blush but the end result in my opinion is total worth it.
On the lips it gives the same pink shade that lasts for up 6 hours with food. It’s formula is super hydrating on the lips and it honestly does not feel like your wearing lipstick when you have this one. It has more of a balmy feel initially and then once the slip is gone you don’t feel anything but there is still a soft pink shade.
The kit retails for roughly 45 euros/40 pounds and is available to purchase from the Jane Iredale website now. I’ve also linked the How To video which is available from the Jane Iredale youtube channel.
